Incorporate interesting details about you. If your role is well understood within the industry, explaining your responsibilities in great detail is likely redundant. Ensure you address your main responsibilities but then include another section below which details your achievements. These details will undoubtedly shape the discussion and create a forum during an interview to discuss how you added value or went above and beyond to achieve a goal. Include interesting challenges you faced which will keep your audience engaged when discussing the examples in detail face to face. Provide enough detail so your audience understands your capability without creating significant repetition when being interviewed. Incorporate interesting details about you.
